Summary. Induction of some oestrous phenomena was achieved. Treatment with 25 mg PGF-2α caused mucous discharge, within 48–72 h after injection, which lasted for 4–5 days. Rectal palpation indicated rapid regression of the CL, and in 9 treatments of 6 buffaloes serum progesterone levels declined from 1·76 ± 0·01 (s.d.) ng/ml before treatment to <0·25 ng/ml within 24 h after injection. Concentrations increased at about Day 11 and reached a peak of 1·78 ± 0·62 ng/ml on Day 18·50 ± 2·45.
